First in the UK and soon in all other regions of the world, Ubisoft has removed their next three heavy weights Games of 2014 from Steam in UK. Currently, the Canadian company is not willing to give the specific reasons for this abrupt decision, but it’s clear that, Ubisoft wants to pretend to do what EA did with Origin, forcing PC users to buy the most important games of a publisher in the corresponding for their own digital client.
Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and The Crew will not be sold via Steam
In a statement provided to VideoGamer.com this morning, Ubisoft said:
“We’ve been in discussions with Valve about ACU, Far Cry 4 and The Crew, but for the time being the games are not available via Steam in the UK.
“In the meantime, UK customers wishing to purchase either of these games digitally can do so by visiting the Uplay store, our retail partners or other digital distributors. ACU, Far Cry 4 and The Crew are available on Steam in other regions outside the UK.”
After poor optimization of their games and high system requirements of game like Assassin’s Creed Unity, It seems like Ubisoft wants to earn the hate from the PC users and willing to steal the crown from EA for the worst company in the market.
Most likely this is just the beginning, as happened with EA games. It seems logical to assume that titles like Rainbow Six: Siege and The Division will also be available via Uplay.
